  2. 2. 2 Forward Looking Statements This presentation contains forward looking statements and factual information that are current as of the date the presentation was originally delivered. UNX Energy Corp. disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. Forward looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements with respect to the timing and amount of estimated future exploration, success of exploration activities, expenditures, permitting, and requirements for additional capital and access to data. Forward looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors which may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of the Company to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward looking statements. Such factors include, among others, risks related to actual results of current exploration activities; changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined; the ability to enter into joint ventures or to acquire or dispose of properties; future prices of oil and gas; accidents, labor disputes and other risks of the oil and gas industry; ability to obtain financing; and delays in obtaining governmental approvals of financing.

  9. 9. Maximizing the Probability of Success The Probability of Success (POS) on a well is a function of the following variables: Reservoir a proper porous rock with adequate permeability and porosity to allow for the accumulation and production of hydrocarbons Trap the hydrocarbons are buoyant and have to be trapped within a structural (anticline, fault block) or stratigraphic trap Source Rock a mature source and timing sequence of migration is also critical as the trap must predate the migration Seal Integrity an impermeable sealing zone, often a shale sequence, which must also predate hydrocarbon migration and retain integrity over time UNX also benefits from the depth of experience in the South Atlantic Margin from: HRT /IPEX significant and successful experience in the South Atlantic Margin using investigative techniques that have proven additive to the POS 9

  12. 12. The Gas-Condensate Petroleum System from Kudu Field Kudu Existing wells all drilled on shelf, where there is no trap New wells need to target syn-rift where proven source exists below Barremian shale seal. Turonian 12
  13. 13. Source Rock
  14. 14. Mello (2000) BRAZIL AFRICA Proterozoic/Paleozoic Paleozoic Proterozoic/Paleozoic Paleozoic Namibia • All wells drilled offshore Namibia had oil shows, (confirmed by biomarker and diamondoid studies) • This analysis confirms identical age and rock type to Brazil SOURCE ROCK – Correlation: Brazil to Africa Marine Deltaic Tertiary Lacustrine Saline Oil Type Lacustrine Brackish/Saline Oil Type Sedimentary Basins Marine Anoxic Albian- Cenomanian Espírito Santo 14
  15. 15. SOURCE ROCK – Oil Seeps, Satellite Surveys in the Orange Basin 15
  16. 16. What is Our Probability of Success? Reservoir sediment deposition moves from onshore to offshore (east to west), and sediment quality volume is high suggesting reservoir characteristics in deeper water should be very good. Confirmed in well data and inferred in seismic Trap clear from seismic and petroleum model that trap preceded petroleum migration. Trap also evident on seismic Source Rock source rocks in the South Atlantic margin are prolific. Two source rocks confirmed in Namibia. Oil slicks, oil samples extracted from the nearby Kudu gas field, and oil stains in all offshore wells confirm presence of mature and active petroleum system Seal Integrity shale sequence is very thick in the deeper water (in excess of 200 metres) and does not appear breached 16

  18. 18. Of the Four Basins in Offshore Namibia, the Orange Basin is of Great Interest and Potential • Namibia’s only discovery to-date (Kudu), confirms many of the geologic conditions required for success • Petrobras farm-in on Chariot, being immediately east of the UXN 2713A Block • Other oil and gas companies are active in the Orange Basin (Shell, Tullow, Forest, Gazprom, Petrobras, BHP Billiton, and PetroSA). • Kudu commercialization initiatives brings options to UNX (and potential promoting partners) if gas is discovered • On the shallow water margin, makes a gas discovery much more economic • Proximity to Orange River is mitigating to POS risk, especially in categories of seal and reservoir • Reasonable well control and technical data as the majority of wells drilled offshore Namibia are located in the Orange Basin offsetting UNX land holdings 18
  19. 19. UNX Strategy Near-Term: • Set-up data room for 2713A, 3D seismic acquisition • Actively pursue farm out partners for both seismic acquisition and the drilling of a well • Implement further work programs, detailing the mapped features and adding to prospect inventory •Acquire 3D seismic during the first half of 2011 Mid-Term: • Balance the Company’s risk profile • Look for undercapitalized development/exploitation assets • Continue to look for additional opportunities to add to prospect portfolio Long-Term: • Develop a company that delivers high level of economic growth through prudent capital allocation resulting in superior economic returns 19
  20. 20. Catalysts • HRT IPO • Globally respected company will be marketing the substantial oil potential of Namibia • Data room process for 2713A (prior to YE 2010) • Petrobras presence at 2714A (immediately east of 2713A) • Potential well in 2011 • Independent resource reports on other blocks, including an update on 2713A • Award of farmout of 2713A in 2011 • 3D seismic programs to be acquired on 2713A and PEL 2815 in 2011 • Further corporate hiring of strategic technical people • Finalization by Tollow Oil of commercialization plans for the Kudu gas project • Additional massive oil discoveries in the South Atlantic Margin offshore Africa and South America 20
